Adrienne Maloof threatened to leave the reality show "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" after talks about her divorce were taped by the show's cameramen, a source told Examiner.
An insider said Maloof demanded her divorce from Dr. Paul Nassif be kept off camera, however, fellow "Housewives" co-star Brandi Glanville did not follow Maloof's request and commented on her divorce on air. The two women then began arguing intensely and Maloof directed her anger also at the reality show's crew.
"Brandi felt Adrienne was being inauthentic and disregarded her wishes to not discuss her marital problems on camera while the two of them were at dinner," the source said. "Adrienne kept her cool at first, but she later broke out into a screaming fit with Brandi and the production staff."
When Maloof found out that "RHBH" cameras filmed the fight and discussion of her divorce, the source said she went "ballistic" and called Bravo producers threatening to quit the show.
Bravo was not concerned with Maloof's complains though because of their contract agreement that "binds her to the show for the rest of the season."
The source added that Maloof also has built up negative feelings toward Lisa Vanderpump, whom she believes is behind Glanville's actions since they are close friends. The source said, "Adrienne feels Lisa put Brandi up to this."
Episode nine of "RHBH," which aired on Monday, resurfaced Maloof's secret regarding her family that Glanville revealed to the rest of the cast in a December episode. While Maloof has not said what the secret is, a source said that it was about her using a surrogate for her three children. Glanville was criticized for making a comment that hit "below the belt," but she defended herself on her Bravo blog by writing that Maloof has done some things to her and when she is attacked she fights back, and hard.
"The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" season three airs Monday nights on Bravo at 9 p.m. Eastern Time.
